Jan Howard, a country icon and Grand Ole Opry member of 49 years, has passed away at the age of 91 in Gallatin, Tenn. The news was confirmed in a statement from the Opry obtained by Fox News. In a statement, Opry vice president and executive producer Dan Rogers said: “Jan Howard was a force of nature in country music, at the Opry, and in life. We were all so lucky so many nights to hear her voice on stage and to catch up with her backstage. We’re all better for having had her in our lives.”
